Why Does It Always Have to be Done That Way?

Paul Shapiro

Myth #14

Myth 14: When sitting on a handline, you must place the Keenan Loop in the hose for stability.

Reality: Again, seeing is believing. Set up a flow test with a 2- 1/2” or 3” handline and try to get a flow of at least 300 GPM. First try it with the Keenan Loop and then without. There should be no difference at all in the stability of the line.

This 400 GPM flow does not require a loop in conjunction with the firefighter sitting to deploy the stream
